Unframed Artists is a book of portraits found in the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, by curator Merry Foresta. More than 100 old photos show the intimacy and family life of great artists such as Picasso next to his daughter Maya, John Lennon posing with Andy Warhol and Yoko Ono, or Frida Kahlo lying in bed.
